Donald Trump…The Man Who Would Be President says NO to Gays


God Help us all!

Donald Trump is shoring up support for a 2012 presidential run after sending an aide to the key election state of Iowa.

 Michael Cohen, executive vice-president at the Trump Organization, flew to Des Moines, the state capital, on today, where the first votes in the contest for the Republican nomination will be cast on February 6.

FYI – Trump is not so big on gays. Trump told Greta van Susteren on her talk show last month that though he loves the fact that there are lots of gays and lesbians in New York City, he doesn’t love them enough to allow them to get married (or divorced like he’s been three times).

In an article in the Des Moines Register, Trump not only reiterates his feelings opposition on marriage equality but expanded on those thoughts saying that gays and lesbians should not be allowed to have partner benefits.

“Asked whether he supports allowing same-sex couples to marry, Trump said no. Iowa conservatives have overwhelmingly opposed the 2009 Iowa Supreme Court decision overturning the state’s ban on gay marriage.”

“They should not be able to marry,” he said. But asked whether gay couples should be able access the same benefits as married couples, he said his “attitude on it has not been fully formed. Given a second to think, Trump said on marriage and civil benefits, “As of this moment, I would say no and no.”

“He’s an extreme bigot,” says Allen Roskoff, who was the first openly gay appointed official in New York City and has served under Gov. Mario Cuomo and Mayor David Dinkins, among others.” Roskoff adds: “Not only should gays be furious, we should be boycotting the products of the advertisers on his TV show” – “Celebrity Apprentice,” which premiered Sunday night on NBC-TV “and certainly boycotting his casinos and hotels and apartment buildings.” Noting that Trump recently switched his stance on abortion from pro-choice to pro-life, Roskoff says: “His game plan is to appeal to the extreme right.”

Trump’s daughter Ivanka has attended marriage equality fundraisers.

Stop this insanity!
